Weapons found in Vagrant Story fall into one of seven categories, called Designs for the purpose of this guide. The categories each have a section here, in alphabetical order. The individual weapons within that category are arranged by Attack (STR), from weakest to strongest. The levels of weapon Designs, from weak to strong, are called Tiers for the purpose of this guide.

The results of Combinations of the eight weapons in the Crossbow category with all of the 90 weapons in Vagrant Story are shown here. A combination of a weapon Design of a particular Tier with one of the same Design and Tier results in either that same weapon, in most cases, and the next higher Tier, in the case of end-Tier weapons, but the Affinities and Classes of the ingredients are combined. For more on the effect of combinations on Affinities and Classes, see Combine in Vagrant Story.

Generally speaking, it can be observed that weapons belong to tiers, ranging from least powerful to most powerful.

  • Weapons in the same Tier, of any Design, are more likely to combine productively.
  • Weapons of the same Design, in adjacent (consecutive) tiers, will combine the best, creating a weapon of the same type but the next higher tier.
  • A weapon in a lower tier will often 'devolve' the higher weapon to the same type but a lower tier. This is called Mismatch in these guides and can be useful if the product is rare (see the Combine section)

Combination Analysis and Table Key Edit

See Combination Analysis

Generally speaking, it can be observed that weapons belong to tiers, ranging from least powerful to most powerful. Weapons of the same Design, in adjacent (consecutive) tiers, will combine the best, creating a weapon of the same type but the next higher tier

  • + Progression: Same-Design combinations of consecutive Tiers that combine to make the next higher consecutive Tier of that same Design
  • No marking: Morph: Design A + Design B = Design C
  • / More useful than it is good. Often Morphs of note
  • L and S are used for the two versions of Footman's Mace; L for Large or Long, the two handed version, and S for Small or Short, the one handed version; choice of mnemonic is up to you.
  • Sometimes there are two different products of the same ingredients, depending on which order the ingredients are added. The first product listed is always the combination with the first ingredient from the left, vertical column of ingredients.
  • - Mismatch
  • = Equal Combinations potentially improve the Class and Affinities of weapons without changing their Design or Tier

Axes and Maces are different Designs for the purposes of Combinations

Crossbow with Same Edit

No same-Design combinations create Morphs

Same-Design Combinations follow the Same Design rules. BRONZE and IRON Axes will always make HAGANE Axes. DAMASCUS Axes combined with Axes of any lower material, including SILVER, will never result in Damascus. Same combinations never make Morphs

Axe + Crossbow Edit

See Axe Combinations, Dagger Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Sword Combinations

There is a tendency for Crossbows of a Tier near Axes they are combined with to create Daggers, Swords, and Great Swords.

The result of these combinations will always be of the same material as the Crossbow blade; see Design Prevalence and Rare Combinations

Dagger with Crossbow Edit

See Axe Combinations, Dagger Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Sword Combinations

There is a tendency for Crossbows of a Tier near Daggers they are combined with to create Axes, Swords, and Great Swords.

The result of these combinations will always be of the same material as the Crossbow blade; see Design Prevalence and Rare Combinations

Crossbow with Dagger has the only Morph of Falchion other than with high Tier Polearms; all other combinations resulting in Falchion are devolutions of higher Tier Swords. This is important when crafting Damascus swords, as Falchion can be used to combine with Shotels that drop in the Temple of Kiltia, and Damascus Polearms are rare.

Great Sword with Crossbow Edit

See Axe Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Dagger Combinations, Mace Combinations

Crossbows of the same Tier as Great Swords they are combined with will Morph to create Daggers. If the Crossbow is a Tier higher, a Mace blade is created. After an irregular first Tier, if the Great Sword is a Tier higher, an Axe results. Another irregular Morph creates a Chamkaq Axe from a 7th Tier Bastard Sword and a 5th Tier Cranequin.

Rare Combinations: All combinations of a HAGANE Crossbow in the first slot and a SILVER Great Sword in the second will be DAMASCUS. Otherwise, the result of these two types of blades will always be of the same material as the Great Sword blade; see Design Prevalence

Heavy Mace with Crossbow Edit

See Heavy Mace Combinations, Dagger Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Sword Combinations

Crossbows combined with Heavy Maces of the same Tier Morph into Daggers. If the Heavy Mace is one Tier higher, a Sword is created. If the Heavy Mace is one Tier lower, a Great Sword is the result.

The result of these combinations will always be of the same material as the Heavy Mace blade; see Design Prevalence and Rare Combinations

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the exception to both of these rules is the Hand of Light. Not only is the result always the material of the Hand of Light, but it will not be a Morph. Instead it will be either a Heavy Mace or Crossbow, depending on which blade is in the first position.

Staff with Crossbow Edit

See Dagger Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Staff Combinations

The combinations of Crossbows and Staves are utterly uniform. There will always be Morph to Sword if the blades are equal in Tier. If Crossbow is one Tier higher, the combine will produce a Dagger. If the Crossbow is two Tiers higher, the combine will produce a Great Sword

Sword with Crossbow Edit

See Axe Combinations, Dagger Combinations, Great Sword Combinations, Sword Combinations

With the exception of combinations with Spatha, that always produces the same or lower Tier, there is a uniform sequence for Morphs of Crossbows and Swords. Equal-Tier combinations produce Axes. If the Sword is one Tier higher, a Dagger is created. If the Sword is two Tiers higher, the result is a Great Sword.

The result of these combinations will always be of the same material as the Crossbow blade; see Design Prevalence and Rare Combinations
